      By default, there is no configured schedule for this setting. If you use this option, the schedule applied on the system will be used.
    • Daily – The update will run on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
    • Every Day All Day – The update will run anytime.
    • Nightly - The update will run on weekdays from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.
    • Weekends - The update will run on Saturdays and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  5. Do the following if you wish to add a customized schedule:
    1. From the DSM console, go to Shared > Schedules.
    2. Create a new schedule. For example, Saturday from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m.
The agent attempts to upgrade the software during the selected time in the Use a Schedule for Upgrade option and bypasses the Computer Access Schedule of the computer. Once the conditions match for the scheduled upgrade, the DSM will send the agent installer to the agents and will proceed to upgrade. When the conditions do not match, the upgrade will stay in queue until the next schedule.
